Russian government resigns after President Putin’s state-of-the-nation address proposes changes to the constitution

 

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has announced that the entire government is resigning in a surprise statement released shortly after President Vladimir Putin delivered his annual state-of-the-nation address.

Accepting the resignation, Putin thanked the ministers for their hard work and asked them to function as a caretaker government until a new one can be formed.

Medvedev and Putin had met for a work meeting to discuss the state-of-the-nation address earlier on Wednesday, the Kremlin said. Medvedev explained that the cabinet is resigning in accordance with Article 117 of the Russian Constitution, which states that the government can offer its resignation to the president, who can either accept or reject it.

Putin also proposed multiple amendments to Russia’s constitution. His proposals would entail “substantial changes” to the constitution as well as to the “entire balance of power, the power of the executive, the power of the legislature, the power of the judiciary,” Medvedev explained.

“In this context, it is obvious that, as the government, we must provide the president with a capability to make all decisions,” which are required to implement the proposed plan, Medvedev said announcing the en-masse resignation.

THAT’S MORE THAN ENOUGH TECH

This headlong rush to adopt new technologies is very worrying.

Watch Your Language

By Mahons On January 15th, 2020 at 1:26 pm

In Northern Ireland the symbolic is as important in politics as the practical. Hence the fights over flags, place names and language.
It appears a deal of sorts has been made on the use of the Irish language. I’m not a speaker myself, but i admire many of the efforts to preserve it. In a conflict free world there would be no issue as to preserving an ancient language based on heritage concerns, but obviously we dont live in a conflict free world. What are your thoughts?

HELP ME OUT HERE, NERDS

The US has warned the British government it “would be madness” to use Huawei technology in the UK’s 5G network.

A US delegation presented the UK with new evidence claiming to show security risks posed by using the Chinese firm.

US President Donald Trump has sought to pressure Prime Minister Boris Johnson on the issue.

A decision is expected this month on whether to allow Huawei to supply some “non-core” parts for the UK network.

I have my own suspicions as to why the government still seems willing to allow the Chinese communist regime build and operate large parts of the 5G network. Mainly it’s that Tories are complacent at their core and partial to heaps of cash. Of course it would be madness to allow those shifty buggers anywhere near the network, and you don’t need intelligence assessments to tell you that.

But what is it that the UK apparently requires which only Huawei has?

MAKE BIG BEN BONG AGAIN

By Pete Moore On January 14th, 2020 at 6:47 pm

It would cost £500,000 for Big Ben to strike at the moment of Brexit, according to the prime minister.

Boris Johnson said Big Ben’s clapper had been removed during the current restoration project and temporarily replacing it would come at a considerable cost.

The idea for the bells to ring out at 23:00 GMT on 31 January – the time and date the UK is due to officially leave the EU (it’ll be midnight in Brussels) – was first floated by pro-Brexit MPs.

But at £500,000, the cost of marking Brexit in this way would be just over £45,000 per bong – assuming the bell strikes 11 times.

Big Ben is the bell. Elixabeth Tower, which all tourists think is Big Ben, is undergoing restoration. Like all government schemes it’s taking years and costing a fortune. So spend half a million more and mark this Great Moment of National Restoration in proper style. Yes, make taxpayers pay. Yes, make Remainers pay too. We all had to fork out for the EU and its antecedents for decades, so screw them on 31st January.

“But Pete” they will whine, “it would triumphalist and jingoistic.” Yes it will, and that’s exactly the point. We won, they lost, and they can start healing the divisions they caused by sucking it up.

We are restoring our sovereignty, independence and self-governance for patriotic reasons. Our rejection of Euro-globalist government is, by definition, a nationalist event. So we will be as jingoistic as we like in our own country at the moment of our rebirth, into the light of independence.

ISLAMIC IMMIGRATION IS A CATASTROPHE

Over to Manchester, for the latest details of mass jihad-rape, enabled and abetted by the useless, hopeless police.

Fears over race relations affected police probe into child sex grooming gang, report suggests

Dozens of teenage girls suspected of being groomed and abused in Manchester by gangs of men from Asian backgrounds were failed because police feared upsetting race relations, a new probe has suggested.

Victims repeatedly alerted officers about sexual assaults, giving names and addresses of those involved, but, in almost all cases, no action was ever taken.

Now, a bombshell report suggests Greater Manchester Police and the city council shelved an investigation into what was happening at least partially because of the “many sensitive community issues” they felt faced with.

“Concerns were expressed about the risk of proactive tactics or the incitement of racial hatred,” the 145-page independent review states.

And it adds: “The authorities knew that many [victims] were being subjected to the most profound abuse and exploitation but did not protect them from the perpetrators. This is a depressingly familiar picture and has been seen in many other towns and cities across the country.”

Don’t tell me that mass immigration has benefited British society. It has been a catastrophe. It is not one gang, one neighborhood or even one town. Tens of thousands of young girls – almost all of them in state so-called care – have been groomed, tortured, branded, raped and, in some cases, murdered across the country by Pakistani muslims.

It centres on Operation Augusta, which was set up in 2004 after the death of Victoria Agoglia, 15, a girl who reported being raped but who died from a suspected overdose soon after she alerted authorities to the abuse.

Augusta subsequently identified at least 57 victims – mainly white girls aged from 12 to 16 – and some 97 potential suspects involved in grooming across the region.

But senior officers at GMP under-resourced the investigation before closing it down completely with the backing of Manchester City Council. Only three people were ever convicted of related crimes at court.

The force had, at that time, just finished dealing with unrelated cases involving the Kurdish community which had created severe tensions and officers were keen not to be seen targeting another minority group, it is suggested.

Victoria Agoglia was repeatedly injected with heroin and raped by Pakistani muslims. She told social workers and the police and they chose to do nothing. In the end a Pakistani muslim injected her with heroin and she died.

No-one has has been held accountable. No-one has been investigated. No-one has been charged, either with paedophiliac jihad-rape offences or with aiding and abetting it when you job is to stop it.

The police always have the resources to do other things. But stop tens of thousands of girls from being abused by muslims? Oh that’s too much trouble!  Bets stay quiet. Don’t rock the boat. The Pakistani muslims might get upset.

Another Major Mistake

By Patrick Van Roy On January 14th, 2020 at 2:22 pm

Over the past two weeks the Elected Democrats have made another major miscalculation. Since we killed Suleimani the Elected Democrats and I say elected because none of this is coming from the rank and file, the Democrats have attacked Trump for killing Suleimani.  Claiming he assassinated him, to outright praising Suleimani and making statements that echo the Iranian leadership right up to and including blaming the U.S. for the Iranians shooting down the Airliner.

This is Trump Derangement Syndrome in the terminal phase. We had a dead American along with several wounded ones, and our embassy was surrounded and burning. The opportunity to kill the terrorist responsible presented itself and he was killed. That combined with the deployment of the rapid response team to the embassy saved American lives. Yet instead of acknowledgement of a job well done they have acted like we were wrong.

The voters of both parties draw the line that the politicians once held. Politics end at the Border. Killing this animal and protecting the Embassy were the right thing to do, but as the Beast said….. “What difference does it make”.

To the American people there’s a big difference.

Now for something completely different.

The following clip is important for anyone who has fallen for the fraudulent Obstruction of Congress that the President has been charged with. I give you a Liberal Lawyer, a Conservative Lawyer and a Talking Head all for your education.

 

No Woman No Cry

By Mahons On January 14th, 2020 at 12:56 pm

The non-aggression pact between Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren appears to be over. The two candidates travel in the same left lane of progressive politics and have generally reserved their attacks for the more moderate (and leading) Joe Biden.
However, Warren staff (followed by Warren herself) are claiming that Sanders told her at a private pow-wow in 2018 that a woman couldnt win.
Sanders says he didnt say it, and points out that a woman did win the popular vote in the last election. Warren’s claim seems a bit calculating, and is probably an effort to hurt Sanders with feminists who might be drifting away from the identity politics she champions. For Sanders the discussion is not unlike having to answer the question when did you stop beating your wife?
The candidate who benefits is probably Biden in that he does not enjoy the enthusiastic support from the left of his party and could use squabbling between his two chief rivals there to remain above the fray (his aides must be trying to glue his mouth shut).
Warren playing the private conversation card now is also revealing. If Sanders really made the comment why wait until you were trailing him? The reason is she has no substantive proposal to generate attention and support. Her candidacy rests almost exclusively on gender identity. In many ways she is a obstacle to the cause of women’s rights. Sanders, a generally decent man although a politically extreme candidate, is too smart to have made such a comment. He will have to hope voters are smart enough to understand that.
